Commercial electrolyte drinks are delicious because they are packed full of sugar and artificial colours and flavours, but may be doing more harm than good. If you have lost fluids from drinking too much alcohol, being sick with the flu, or working out, here is a simple, natural, and cost effective way to rehydrate and replace lost minerals.

Hot version
One sixth teaspoon salt (preferably Himalayan pink salt which has a high mineral content)
Juice from one quarter of a small lemon
Quarter teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
One teaspoon raw organic honey
Optional: quarter teaspoon dried or fresh ginger

Add the salt, vinegar and ginger to a mug, pour boiling water over it, add the honey and lemon, and stir through.

Cold version
Add the salt, vinegar and ginger to a glass, add a little boiling water and mix it all together, then add either water or some diluted fruit/vegetable juice (preferably freshly squeezed) and some ice cubes if desired.
